The Women’s Fund of Winston-Salem will celebrate nine years of improving the lives of women and girls in Forsyth County at its annual luncheon on Wednesday, Nov. 19 at the Benton Convention Center.

The theme of this year’s luncheon, “The Time is Now. The Difference is You,” is meant to emphasize the impact that collective giving has on the community.

The Women’s Fund of Winston-Salem leverages the power of women’s collective giving to provide grants to local, community initiatives that address the root causes of problems affecting women and girls in Forsyth County. In the last eight years, The Women’s Fund of Winston-Salem has awarded 71 grants totaling $1,038,867 to local organizations. Grants are funded from the pooled contributions of the Fund’s members and donors. The Fund’s members now more than 800 strong, include female corporate and nonprofit leaders, educators, community organizers.

This year, nearly $105,000 in grants will be announced and awarded to the recipients during the luncheon, which is expected to draw local elected officials, corporate and nonprofit and community leaders, educators, volunteers, entrepreneurs and college and high school students.  WXII’s Wanda Starke will serve as emcee.

Tickets to the luncheon, which will be held from noon – 1:30 p.m., are $25. For tickets or more information about The Women’s Fund of Winston-Salem, visit www.womensfundws.org.
